The main village of the municipality of Valle Aurina has a special attraction to offer with the Mining Museum in the Granary

Along the Valle Aurina road, Cadipietra follows after San Giovanni. It is somewhat smaller than the neighbouring locality, but as the administrative centre with the town hall it represents the main village of the municipality. The German name Steinhaus (Stein means stone, and Haus means house) probably derives from to the striking large stone houses that date back to the Counts of Enzenberg and the "Ahrner Handel", the commerce in the valley. Even from a distance, the buildings stand out yellow and copper-red between the green meadows and the blue sky.

One of these buildings in Cadipietra (Steinhaus) is the granary, the former food magazine of the Predoi copper mine. Today it houses the South Tyrol Mining Museum - Location Cadipietra, and shows life in the mine by presenting the multimedia collection of the Enzenberg family. Other historic buildings in the village are the Gassegg Manor, the former Mühlegg Mining Judge's House, the Enzhof farm with the date 1733, and the Our Lady of Loreto Parish Church.

Mt. Klausberg is an attraction for families, recreation seekers and active holidaymakers. The lifts start right in the village and take you to destinations such as the Durreck High Route, which then leads to Lake Chiusetta. Sometimes you can hear the whistling of marmots from the shore. With the Family Park, where life-size dinosaurs and the Klausberg Flitzer await you, Mt. Klausberg also offers its very own adventure land. In winter, 33 km of pistes extend here - among them is the valley downhill run, which is illuminated at night and then serves as a toboggan run.
